Default cutting rear upper coil buckets off

What did everyone use to cut the welds on the inside of the frame?

Was removing the tub necessary?

Cutting it off is easy when you don't need to reuse them. I couldn't cut just the weld because it was too hard to get to up top so I just cut the coil bucket bracket that made it easy
